‘The LEGO Batman Movie’ Leads the 2017 Golden Trailer Nominees

Lego Batman
Warner Bros.

There are awards for everything in Hollywood except craft services (at least to my knowledge; if there are craft services awards please let me know, I’d love to attend and eat the food). That means there are trophies for movie trailers, which are honored each year by the Golden Trailer Awards. Since 1999, the GTAs have celebrated the best coming attractions of each year in a variety of categories.

My favorite is the “Golden Fleece,” the prize for the best trailer for the worst movie. This year’s nominees for that award include xXx: The Return of Xander Cage and the infamous Gus Van Sant bomb The Sea of Trees. On the flip side, the nominees for best trailer of the summer movie season include Wonder WomanTransformers, and this one from the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 campaign.
